Frame-A-Day Week 31: 7/30-8/5

July 30--LimberJack and Jill--I took all three kids to the library for a special story time and craft on lumberjacks, since this weekend the Lumberjack World Championship was being held in Wisconsin.  The kids each made a limberjack or jill toy, similar to the wooden ones that dance on planks.  After their jacks and jills were made, they competed in log rolling (toilet paper rolls) and tree chopping, shown here.  This was one of the better library crafts we have had this summer.

*July 31--Goin' Down the River--We went to the amusement park today and enjoyed the water park. Here, we see Trust, Imp and I floating down the lazy river. So relaxing!

August 1--Lean on Me--Chretien was showing Imp a computer game we borrowed from the library.  This scene just made me say "Awwwwww."

*August 2--Keep Your Cool in the Summer--(This is not the actual photo, but it was taken at the same time as the one I'm using)--This is the second summer that Trust has continued her skating lessons.  It's worked out beautifully, as there are normally only three or four kids in her class.  It's practically a private lesson!  Here, we see Trust taking a short break.

August 3--Sweet Boy--Although he had been acting fresh right up until this photo was taken at the farm, Imp just sort of suddenly stopped and donned his "sweet boy" persona.  It's times like this that I am reminded of how our decision to have a third child almost four years ago turned out to be a really, really good idea.

August 4--Day-o!--Chretien took Imp to the library for a Caribbean story, song and craft hour, complete with the making of a beach with a clothespin man in a hammock, catching some rays.

August 5--Dinosaur Dandy--I took all three to the kids' museum tonight for one of their free Friday evenings.  This was the first time we've ever played in the front yard in the sandbox as well as with the mascot Bessie.


  1. Becca calls that museum the dinosaur museum. :) We're going on Wednesday. How crowded was it on a free Friday night? Dave has suggested that before, but I wasn't sure. I have the library pass for Wednesday.

    Love the library crafts this week - and the lazy river photo!

  2. Kellemel--We didn't arrive until close to 7, so I think some of the younger kids may have left already. It didn't seem any more crowded than a weekend day.

  3. Love the one of Imp with the flowers. So cute!

  4. Fun week. I love the library crafts.

  5. Hi!
    Great snapshots! Love the dino picture, so cute. Have a great day!
